Guy with $3 in his account withdraws over a million dollars from the ATM
This is me currently, after buying presents, paying rent, and all my bills every purchase now is backed by a wish and a prayer. So if I checked my account at an ATM and saw that it said $3, I’d probably just cancel everything and sadly walk back home.
But that’s not what Dan Saunders did.
Dan Saunders, shown above being as classy as can be, saw that he had $3 and just said, “fuck it”. He tried withdrawing $200, and by some miracle, it worked. Not wanting to question a good thing, he spent that money getting him and his pals absolutely blitz.
And on his way home he figured there was no way it would work again, but low and behold it did. The next morning he checked his bank statements and saw that neither of the transactions appeared.
What was happening? Well in his eyes he found his modern-day equivalent of Jed Clampett striking oil.
What really happened was the ATM was down for maintenance, he tried to transfer money from his credit card to his savings, the machine read error but still processed the transaction and transferred the money.
So what would the proper citizen do? Well, I don’t know if we’ll ever find out because he just kept withdrawing money as much as he could.
So here is this poor bartender who is spending money like the world is ending, not even a thought of how this looks to those around him. Nothing could go wrong, right?
Saunders spent over 20 thousand dollars in the first few weeks, and there was no way this wasn’t throwing up red flags to all his co-workers and friends.
They assumed he started selling drugs, nothing else could explain this rags-to-riches story. His girlfriend even dumped him, assuming he had become the next Heisenberg (also, she dumped him over text so maybe she’s not a huge loss).
So Dan decides he doesn’t need this kind of scrutiny (even if it’s totally justifiable), and he finds new friends and spends over $90 thousand on a private jet to a remote island for a weekend getaway.
I know this guy is a criminal and this is super illegal, but I’d be lying if I said I probably wouldn’t do the same exact thing.
Dan ends up moving to Las Vegas, telling all his new friends he was a surgeon, or a poker player, or whatever else could explain that much money without working.
Every now and then the bank would call and ask if he knew he was overdrawn by hundreds of thousands of dollars, and he would always answer, “yep”.
The balls on this guy…
Eventually, he starts to feel guilty, albeit four months and over $1 million dollars later, but still, he made the kinda-right choice and stopped taking the money. Honestly I kind of applaud this guy, yeah he’s clearly breaking the law, but can you imagine walking away from that much money when no one is even trying to stop you?
After a while, the bank contacts the police about the whole affair and Dan gets a warrant for his arrest. 3 years later. Seriously?!?
So after a few days of hiding, Saunders turns himself in and gets 12 months in jail. Which if there are 8,760 hours in a year, and if we round to a million dollars he stole, he still made $1,142 an hour. I’d go to jail for a year knowing I’d earn $27,397 a day.
Dan is out of jail and back on the straight and narrow, but when asked if he would do this again his answer was, “in a heartbeat.”
